$2,899 for Laser-Only LASIK Eye Surgery for Both Eyes ($6,000 Value)
LASIK treatments can help address such visual deficiencies as near- and farsightedness and astigmatism. After leading a consult to confirm candidacy, the doctors schedule surgery, which begins with the IntraLase laser creating a small flap on the corneal surface. A laser then reshapes the curvature of the cornea under the flap according to calibrations customized for each patient. Next, the flap is replaced and allowed to fuse to the rest of the cornea, which doesn't require any stitches or sutures. Eyes typically heal well enough for patients to see after one day, and many procedures result in 20/20 vision or better.
Family Eye Physicians
The eye doctors at Family Eye Physicians, which include an ophthalmologist with a resume that lists advanced training in pediatric eye care a position as chief resident of John Stroger Hospital, employ the latest technology to perform preventative and restorative services. To diagnose eye issues, they create three-dimensional images with high-resolution optical coherence tomography and use a technique called fluorescein angiography, in which a fluorescent dye is injected into the arm to highlight ocular abnormalities, such as deposits beneath the retina or blood vessel patterns that resemble Elvis. The highly trained team can improve cataract patients' vision at all distances via intraocular lens implants, or make glasses and contacts obsolete with microkeratome or bladeless LASIK vision-correction surgery.
